Producer from the municipality is traveling around Brazil and has also identified major delays in other locations
Soybean planting is more than 40 days late in the Paracatu/MG region
The rural producer in the municipality of Paracatu in Minas Gerais, João Alves da Fonseca, is traveling around Brazil to celebrate his 60th birthday, and stopped by the Notícias Agrícolas studios to share what he is seeing of the soybean crops from the 2023 harvest/ 24 at this time.
Starting with his region, the producer says that he planned to finish planting the crop around October 20th, but activities have not yet ended, even in irrigated areas, causing delays of more than 40 days in sowing.
Passing through regions of Minas Gerais, Mato Grosso do Sul, Paraná and São Paulo, Fonseca reports that he saw similar situations in many of these places, with difficulties in planting due to the weather conditions.
He states that, thinking only about soybeans, there is still time to plant and have good crop development, but extending the planning to the second corn harvest of 2024, the situation becomes more complicated and the sowing window is already quite compromised.
